About the Faculty

Out of the interest of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, the Late King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud in expanding education in general and academic education in particular, and to meet the needs of the local community and the labor market in the Northern Borders Region; the Faculty of Family & Consumer Sciences was established at Northern Borders University in 1431AH/ 1432 H Under the resolutions of the University President in Charge, Dr. Osama Al-Tayeb. The establishment of the Faculty of Family & Consumer Sciences undoubtedly constitutes a new phase in the service and development of the community and the provision of training and continuous scientific and educational consultations. It places the university within the framework of its original role in the initiative, which is addressing the needs of society and finding scientific solutions to its various problems in light of its vision and mission.
